Circuit Vision

 

 

A vision for our Circuit

We will:

  • Offer good news to our rural communities, unafraid to speak of Jesus and offering a welcome to all
  • Be light on our feet and light in our community, cherishing what is past but unafraid to change for the sake of the future
  • Ensure that the church is recognised as the people who gather rather than the building they gather in
  • Work from about 30 local churches, some of which will offer mission and ministry in more than one location, sharing resources and energy for the sake of the gospel
  • Ensure that our primary focus is always about how do we best proclaim the message:

“The Kingdom of God is at hand”

This vision was presented by the Superintendent and staff to the Circuit Meeting on 19 June 2017

    A treat today: this is an original piece of Spoken Word written for the Courageous Day Out by our poet-in-residence, Chloe Tissiman, whose faith was formed within the AD33 youth project which was jointly run by Kinver Methodist Church with St Peter’s, Kinver. Very many thanks to Chloe for the...
  • Courageous Lent: Daring to do things differently
    The inspiration for today’s post is the Lord Mayor of Sheffield, Magid Magid. Born in Somaliland, Magid came to the UK as a child refugee in 1994 aged 5, fleeing the Somali Civil War. He arrived with his mother and five siblings, speaking no English. They settled in Burngreave in...
  • Courageous Lent: Adoption
    *This is the second unsolicited “guest contribution” I’m delighted to post. It’s good to know that my own reflections are prompting others to reflect too. The image has also been chosen by the author. It’s “Dalit Madonna” by Jyoti Sahi and is part of the Methodist Art Collection.* This week...
  • Courageous Lent: On The Streets
    When I originally envisioned this series, I imagined the focus mainly being on images, with a few well chosen words to accompany.  Instead the focus so far has been mostly on words. So today, I’m going to leave this image to speak for itself.  It was taken by Richard Hall,...
